RE: Closing Thru Hulls

I like Keiths suggestion of the retro-reflective tape. That is the first time i have heard of that.

RE: Closing Thru Hulls

FF's idea is probably cheaper, but I actually bought mine at a marine store, 3M stuff. As kids they used to pass the stuff out free at school to put on our bikes.

RE: Closing Thru Hulls

I leave the seacocks open (except the waste of course) and always have. I know of two boats that sunk from stuffing box failures, but I keep mine anyway. I do worry sometimes about the A/C pump running with a broken hose....but I leave the air running and make sure all hoses are sound and high quality and no corrosion is present at thru hulls (having the diver check the thru hulls and zincs while cleaning the bottom monthly helps).
